Indeed, the Chileans are in a rich vein of form, and having comfortably seen off Venezuela 3-0 last time out. This test is a big step up in class, though, and Bet365 price them at 7/1 (8.00) for another win.
La Roja, meanwhile, are offered at just 2/5 (1.40) but that seems just about right when you consider that they have won each of their last 11 friendlies including victories over Ecuador and Uruguay.
However, Chile should provide Vicente del Bosque's with their trickiest test in a friendly match for quite some time and, while the South Americans may not win, they certainly have enough about them to score.
Both teams to score is offered at 8/11 (1.73) and that appears to be a decent enough price when bearing in mind that Chile have scored in 12 of their previous 13 matches including 12 goals in their last three games.
They are an exciting, dynamic, technically gifted side going forward, with a few questions marks remaining about them defensively. That is a combination which makes this the perfect selection for this game.
